Join the Spirit with Lucas Meyer Cosmetics!
A new and unique brand identity to reflect the company's leadership position and expertise in active ingredients, functional ingredients and delivery systems.
QUEBEC, April 2, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Unipex Innovations, a subsidiary of the Unipex Group and leader in the field of innovative active ingredients for the cosmetics industry, is launching today its new name and global brand identity. Unipex Innovations will now be doing business as Lucas Meyer Cosmetics. Lucas Meyer Cosmetics is a brand new actor with unique expertise across the board. State-of-the-art active ingredients combined with innovative delivery systems and biomimetic functional ingredients now become the creative materials behind highly inspiring innovation services.
Following the acquisition of Lucas Meyer Cosmetics by Unipex Innovations in July 2011 and a strategic reorganization, the company decided to change its name and update its branding to better reflect its comprehensive portfolio of products and services. "Unipex Innovations has built a solid reputation as a provider of innovative active ingredients over the past decade. We want to simplify our offering to customers and group our teams and proprietary products under one name. The company's management and ownership, as well as its people and products remain unchanged. Our new name and image reflect our wider array of sophisticated and highly innovative products and services. "We're moving forward by developing the next generation of active ingredients, functional ingredients and delivery systems and by renewing our image," says Antonio Lara, Vice-President and General Manager of Lucas Meyer Cosmetics.
In addition to the name change, the company is adopting a new design scheme and the "Join the Spirit" tagline. "Join the Spirit" perfectly reflects the energy, devotion, passion, innovation and team spirit all the employees have for their work, customers and partners. "Creative, innovative and dynamic, we are constantly moving forward by offering new products and new formulations!" says Isabelle Lacasse, Marketing Director of Lucas Meyer Cosmetics.
The company is launching a new website today: www.lucasmeyercosmetics.com.
Effective immediately, all future operations will be conducted under the new name. The Lucas Meyer Cosmetics' team is inviting all customers and partners to come see the new global brand identity at this year's in-cosmetics exhibition in Barcelona (April 17-19) at booth M30. Join the Lucas Meyer Cosmetics spirit!
Two new innovative active ingredients for aging skin
At the in-cosmetics show in Barcelona, Lucas Meyer Cosmetics will also unveil its two latest active ingredients: Progeline™ and Adipofill™. In 2012, with advances in scientific knowledge, we have come to see that it is no longer only about fighting the signs of aging, but also delaying the aging process. With Progeline™, a high tech biomimetic peptide, we are rethinking how to approach skin aging by modulating progerin, a new marker for aging, resulting in a complete remodelling effect and reduction of the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
As a complement to Progeline™, Adipofill™ is a bio-tech active ingredient encapsulated in our proprietary delivery system Ionosome™. It stimulates the synthesis of fat tissue through a previously undiscovered pathway. The increase of fat content in skin cells results in face lipostructure that corrects wrinkles and fine lines, like a facelift in a jar. Both ingredients are finalists for the Innovation Zone's Best Innovative Ingredient Award at this year in-cosmetics exhibition.
